CV Junior achievements go far with the club’s William Hall recently crowded U13s Champion at the BOFRA (British Open Fell Runners Association) Annual Awards ceremony in Barnoldswick last Saturday. Will won the under 12 age group and James Duffy came fourth (though would probably got third had the Wasdale race not been cancelled due to flooding). They were presented with their trophies by fell running legend Victoria Wilkinson. Said proud dad, Stephen Hall:

“A great night was had by all, celebrating success for all the adults and youngsters that had committed to an excellent race series.”
